I've been longing for a story about the twins for some time, as I too can't accept they would just die...
I think your story is well written and covers what could have happened to them quite thoroughly, but I cannot say how accurate your facts are... I have yet to read the Silmarilion, not to mention HoME...
I hope you will keep writing, I'd be interested to know what happens to the twins during the second and third age!
Author's Response: Wow, I'd all but forgotten I had this account! I loved writing this story and I loved the twins, I truly did. I tried to make the background fit in as well as possible with the canonical Silmarillion/HoME information although in the end, I took the twins rather off the beaten track and everything that happened to them after they were left in the forest was speculative so I'm not sure facts come into it ;) I still get the urge to write sometimes but to be honest I'm so busy these days it never really happens, so I can't promise any new fics in the foreseeable future I'm afraid. Thank you so much for the review - it's lovely to hear there are still people reading and enjoying my stories 9 years after I started writing fanfiction!
Nice one. It feels almost complete, though the happy end is still missing (I kinda hope for it).
Beautiful story here... Ok, I'm a bit biased, my favorite character is Erestor... I love the dry humor and your descriptions feel quite vivid too. And of course it's nice to read something writen in proper English ^^
If I may suggest so, breaking the story into smaller chapter would have made it easier to read... I also feel that you gave up the suspense a bit too soon: we can tell almost from the start that Erestor is Melkor's son and that it will end up in a show down between the two...
I enjoyed reading it anyway!
Wonderful story, I only wished it had been longer, seriously, I could have kept reading forever (it's actually the third time I'm reading it).
As I said on ffnet, I love your story, it's one of the first that I followed. I like Elrond's idea, that would probably do the trick. How long before Glorfindel tries to smash down the door though?
The only thing I could find to criticise (as in constructive criticism) is that they don't nearly seem hang over enough to me (is that the right way to phrase it?)... Especially Glorfindel who just woke up. Given how much alcohol they drank, they should be pretty smashed. Maybe elves hold their liquor better than humans, but I like a bit of self-pity ^^
Anyway, it's great, please keep it up!
Nice story, I was wondering when Legolas would really become the las Sylvan. Isn't Laiqualasse Quenya though? It seems a bit strange that Thranduil would name his son in Quenya...
Anyway, I'll be waiting for the next chapter!
Author's Response: You are correct about Laiqualasse being Quenya. I am aware of that, but I'm not at liberty to say anymore about it. Guess you'll just have to wait and continue to read along. ; - )
Nice chapter. You had me crying again at the burial. So Legolas found himself a human girlfriend? I can't wait to see where this is going, you really know how to keep us wanting for more!
Author's Response: Well, little Legi has to start somewhere, though this is quite innocent. Thanks for your kind words.
So Legolas is at last going to Rohan... He will have to leave his little friend behind, poor child.
I'm looking forward to the next part!
Author's Response: Unfortunately yes, he will have to leave a lot of people behind, but Rohan will offer new relationships and adventures.
